Building Community on the Web

by Stephen Simpson
Publication: One-to-One, Autumn 2007


If you haven’t seen the new CSM website lately, you haven’t seen the CSM Website! We’ve made sweeping changes that have not only greatly enhanced the visual appeal–including a new logo–but have also increased the site’s user friendliness, providing new resources and tools you can use.

Many of our constituents are thrilled to have the NEW WINE Magazine archives available online for the first time ever. Our ultimate goal is to have every one of our publications from the past 38 years available online! It’s a major tsk, but we’ve already made great progress to make it a reality.

We also have made Season One of “Time Out with Coach” completely downloadable. This audio feature provides short highly-focused talks by Charles Simpson on specific relevant topics that will encourage and equip you for the day. To view these and other features, visit us at today!

We are especially excited about another feature of the website, the CSM News and Discussion Forum. This interactive bulletin board lets you talk directly with us and other key allies of this ministry. There are numerous relevant and timely topics presently being discussed and you can jump right into an existing discussion – or create your own, and invite others to join with you. Theology and apologetics, biblical worldview and current events, prayer requests, youth, conferences and camps, marketplace and entrepreneurial ideas, and even… football… are being discussed. Add your thoughts and help us build a strong web community that will inspire and inform in an interactive environment.

Registration is free and easy, and participants will receive special offers and gifts, including free audio Bible teaching downloads. This forum is the place to find out what’s happening right now with CSM and related ministries. It’s also a great place to catch up with old friends from across the USA and the world, plus make some new ones.

Your thoughts and ideas are important to us. We are especially grateful and honored to know many of you reading this personally, and we want to serve and bless you in any way that we can. We believe that “Feedback is the breakfast of champions,” so let us know what you think! See you on the web!
